Troisième forum européen des neurosciences Paris. Palais des Congrès 13 au 17 juillet 2002

Organisé par la Fédération des Sociétés Européennes de Neurosciences (FENS) http://www.fens.org/ et la société française des Neurosciences http://www.neurosciences.asso.fr/

Le Forum Européen des neurosciences se tient tous les deux ans. Après Berlin en 1998 et Brighton en 2000, c'est à Paris que se déroule la 3e édition de cette manifestation. Elle est soutenue par l'Inserm et le CNRS, acteurs essentiels de la recherche dans ce domaine, au plan national comme international.
